Quote: ...A POST-STORM ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT ADRIAN DID NOT MAKE LANDFALL AS A HURRICANE IN EL SALVADOR EARLY ON THE 20TH... AS ASSESSED OPERATIONALLY. BASED ON EXAMINATION OF SATELLITE DATA AND SURFACE OBSERVATIONS... INCLUDING SHIP DATA OBTAINED AFTER THE EVENT... IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED THAT ADRIAN WEAKENED OFFSHORE... WITH THE CENTER MOVING EASTWARD EARLY ON THE 20TH AND ENTERING THE GULFO DE FONSECA... JUST EAST OF EL SALVADOR... AS A TROPICAL DEPRESSION. THE DEPRESSION THEN MADE LANDFALL ON THE PACIFIC COAST OF HONDURAS DURING THE EVENING OF THE 20TH... http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2005/tws/MIATWSEP_may.shtml?
That certainly answers alot of questions as to why the storm appeared to have weaked so fast.
